An opener of doors, teller of tales, and family scribe, Catherine Sevenau is the author of Queen Bee: Reflections on Life and Other Rude Awakenings and Passages from Behind These Doors: A Family Memoir. Her kaleidoscope of frank, funny, tender tales are about sin and prayer, good intentions and unattended sorrows… and about finding our way back home. With clarity and perspective, Sevenau embraces the events of her early years; what occurred happened for her, not to her, transforming a bewildering, fractured childhood into a life well lived. Catherine is an irreverent humorist and an astute storyteller. This is a compilation of her blog posts, ruminations on Facebook, and a number of new and older stories not heretofore published.
Catherine has also compiled five volumes on her family genealogy, works until wee hours of the morning managing nearly 7,000 pages for ancestors and kin on Find A Grave, co-hosts Random Acts, a monthly open mic at Readers’ Books in Sonoma, California, and is a longtime Broker/Owner/Realtor in the Sonoma Valley.
